Swaddling?

For Mommies: Did you swaddle your baby? Did baby like it?

For pregnant ladies: Do you plan on swaddling your baby?

Mommies, please post a picture of your swaddled baby if you've got one.


Here is Jacob swaddled in the hospital. I swaddled him in the hospital, but once we got home, he would squirm around until he got his hands free so I just stopped swaddling him.

My other kids loved to be swaddled. Though we are "experts" at doing it, I'm making a few of these so that even the older kids can "swaddled" her. It will be cold when she comes. I don't want her to be cold nor can I sleep in really hot rooms.

We swaddled Marsi for a while after she came home. She was having major reflux issues so to combat that we couldn't continue swaddling but it was just fine. We just used a regular receiving blanket to swaddle.

My son LOVED to be swaddled (I just used blankets though) & my daughter HATED it, so we shall see what this little one likes.

I might have pics of them swaddled, but will have to go find my old pictures...

Addy went both ways, she loved being swaddled when DH did it, but if I did it or was holding her, she wanted her hands free - strange little girl...lol! She isn't swaddled anymore...

Swaddled at the hospital with her big sis holding her

We'll try it... I know that it doesn't work for all babies so we'll just see what works for Regan. My niece HATED it when she was brand new! She'd get so mad and just scream until we'd let her have her arms out.

Akadia hated it and always worked her way out anyways. I use those sacks that have the arm holes. She liked those way better. No plans to swaddle this baby either.

Liam didn't mind it, but didn't love it. Because of his GERD, the doc told us to put him on his belly to sleep and you can't swaddle them for that. So his was short-lived.

Kieran was hilarious. At the hospital, the nurses would come in and check him, wrap him back up tight, and give him back to me...and he would proceed to wriggle and stretch until he was free and then sleep contentedly. So, it was safe to say it didn't last past the hospital. I even bought some of those cool swaddle blankets from Aden and Anais. Maybe next baby will like it!
